With the Holidays behind us, all of our out of town guests have returned home and our New Year resolutions have been set…..I would say it’s time to map out what hunting adventures are in our sites!
Heidi already has her plans set…coyotes and a new shotgun! I was fortunate to have my Dad pass to me his beautiful Smith & Wesson Model 1000 12g a shotgun last year so Im looking forward to a hunt with it.
My first hunt was in 2008 during Fall Turkey season with a great guide. After a half mile walk in the dark, thru swampy land that pulled my boots off at one point – I made my first shot! What excitement went thru me when I saw the 26lb Tom I had shot. Bitter sweet – in the thrill of pulling the trigger I failed to hold on tight to my shotgun and almost broke my nose. Live and learn.
Today my beautiful bird is sitting in the corner of our EDGE office-reminding me always to “Hold on tight”.
Like Heidi-Im thinking coyote hunting is next on my list. Hoping someday to hook up with Sparky from M2D Camo on one of his Idaho hunts.
Happy Hunting this year and remember to Hunt with Edge. Carolyn H. Pidgeon
